A local couple hopes their appearance on a national morning show will help shed light on the adoption need of earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
In October, the Rev. John Kraner, his wife Julie and seven other members of Wayne Street United Methodist Church traveled to Haiti as part of a mission trip to HIS (Haitian Interdenominational Shelter) Home For Children.
